Angry Birds: special Android version for HTC Wildfire incoming

Games maker Rovio is developing a special version of Android Birds for the likes of the HTC Wildfire, Eris and Tattoo, after owners of lower-end phones reported problems running the game on their handsets.

The company pushed out an update for the Android version of the game last week. Alongside 45 brand, spanking new levels, the new edition of title was also supposed to be compatible with handsets with smaller screens.

However, Rovio has since been beset with reports of glitches from disappointed Wildfire owners. These include persistent crashes, no picture and slow start-up.

To address the problems, the firm has announced via its Twitter feed that it is now planning “a special toggle for lower performance devices”, which will “reduce detail to bare minimum” so that they can handle the game.

More costly Android phones with more lavish specifications are unaffected by the issues. So if you’ve got yourself a Samsung Galaxy S or the HTC Desire in its standard or HD iterations and want to see just why the game is so popular, get down the Android Market or GetJar right now and get onboard.
